Quilt With Us

So life throws another curve my way

I believe that it was just a few short years ago that I was complaining about being moved from room to room with my sewing machines. From the house to the garage, to the house, to a room the other half finished for me.  Hummm guess what.... I'm about to be moved yet again.  The other half is home for the next few days and I finally got the word that his daughter isn't moving in with us! I'm sure I made her mad.  She has a two year old and expecting another. The two year old loves to scream, and mommy thinks it's sooooooo cute. NOT.  I told her that she would not be letting the two year old scream all day and night.  I believe in letting kids have fun and to a point expanding lung capasity is ok but not on a 24 hour basis. While his daughter doesn't get up and go to work, I do.  There are rules, and I guess she didn't like them.  So having finished off the rest of the garage for his daughter who isn't moving in, I decided sense it has a heater and more than enough room for all my machines and tables and plenty of floor space for laying quilts out on the floor, I should get the room! It would be nice if I came home from work tomorrow and everything was moved in for me.  After all thats what he did to me last time. Some how I don't think that is going to happen.

There's nothing worse than feeling like you have to leave your home to have peace.  Been there, done that, never want to do it again, please God!

My grandson 5yrs old told my husband that Grandma's house has rules.   It took a couple of times with me for him to follow the rules.  YOUR HOUSE, YOUR RULES!

Great you are getting a bigger sewing room out of it!

I don't blame you.  Sometimes you have to set boundaries.

Hey!  I am happy for you and I do believe that children screaming is totally uncalled for!  Playtime is one thing, they are young enough, they may not know any better, but parents should control the volume.  In the house?  Indoor voice, outside the house, okay with boundaries.  Restaurants, shops, etc. should be indoor voices.  Can be done, the parents just need to be parents and realize not eveyone is used to screaming kids....now onto the sewing room!  CONGRATS!  How wonderful for you....photos of course are needed and need to be posted HERE!  Have a great day!

No matter how much we complain about family issues, without them, I guess we wouldn't have a 'story' to tell. Good luck with the moving..and hang a sign on your new sewing room for others to heed...'Enter at your own risk." :-)

I don't blame you Kathy.  Even if you didn't work outside the home, why should you be subjected to that kind of behavior?!

Hey Kathy, I think that is what we all know as "wishful thinking".  I think it is only fair but I would be patient and when he leaves out again I could hire a few young men to do the weight lifting and take care of that problem on my own.  I wish you the best of luck.
